        That's so much more than most TF characters will ever get to do. Wheeljack having funny light up ears was enough to make him an endearing character

        Wheeljack has a very unique design (mostly his head, but also his shoulder/laser), is basically a mad scientist, and has a fantastic voice actor. I was disgusted with what they did to him in Cyberverse. He sucked in Prime but nowhere near the level of blasphemy as he was in Cyberverse.

          Cyberverse Wheeljack is the one you dislike the most? That seems to be the closest to G1 version of Wheeljack after the original.

            Yes. He was a CHEAP copy of the original. His voice is NOTHING like his G1 counterpart, not even an attempt was made to be somewhat similar and he has a fricking mouth and mustache. Its a spit in the face to anyone who liked the original. At least the Prime version was clearly just a tough guy character they slapped the name on half hazardly.

            Grimlock and the Dinobots were pretty good up until post-movie.

            >but also his shoulder/laser

            Hound, Sideswipe, Trailblazer, and maybe you could count Perceptor had those. There's probably a few I left out. It's really just the head.

            There are a handful of others that have the shoulder gun, but it still stands out and is generally unique.

            I don't like Prime Wheeljack, but I do think it's kinda interesting that they went back to the G1 toy, saw his face kinda feels like Snake Eyes, and made him a ninja/martial arts type fighter instead of a scientist.

            Prime Wheeljack sucks but it felt like he was a totally different character they just tossed the name on without a thought. That, to me, is less insulting than what Cyberverse did. Those people knew what he should be and made a half-assed replica, though that may be giving it too much credit.

              I’m pretty sure Toybox was acquired by Tomy and they found them in Tomy’s archives after the merger with Takara. The Toyco situation is complicated since apparently Toyco licensed the Galactic Man toy to so many outside companies that they don’t know who owns the mold anymore, meaning we probably won’t get a reissue of G1 Shockwave anytime soon.

                Hasbro licensed transforming robot toys outside of Tarakafor Transformer to fill out the early TF roster. Takara had other figures in Diaclone- but many of them were more partsforming or regular robots instead of transforming. The VF-1 toy from takatoku isn't a real F-14 but looks close enough to pass for a similar jet in the mostly real-world TF vehicle line up.
                Around the time they got this license, Takatoku toys was absorbed by Bandai, a major competitor of Takara. While Bandai honored the licensing deals Takatoku did, Takara was likely apprehensive as well as any issues that'd bop up with big west/Tatsunoko/etc. over a Macross design

                He was originally Super Change Robo Mechabot-1 from some company called Toybox. Luckily Takara bought them out and gained the mold. Same with Sky Lynx.

                Sky Lynx and Omega Supreme came from a company called ToyBox, no fiction or any media for them, just one of many asian companies that made robot toys.
                In one of the funniest twists of fate, somewhere between 1985 and 2007 Takara realized they OWNED the mold after they bought out the assets of the Toybox company, and were then able to reissue it.
                Shockwave is more mysterious- the toy got licensed out to both Hasbro and Radioshack by "toyCo", the company still exists and could theoretically still reissue it but it's hard to locate them.

                The prices do not make sense. I have no fricking clue what makes them priced what.

                Optimus in box is about 40, Grimlocke and the rest of the dinobots are $35ish each. Seekers run about$50, Soundwave is 70ish.

                But then all the minibots like Brawn, Bumblebee, Cosmos are $20-30 each

                Metroplex with all the accessories is about $20.

                Then the Stunticons, Combatacons, and Areialbots range from $90-130

                Not really, the reissues were always overpriced. The Toys R Us reissues around 2007 or so were all in that same price range. $50 to $80 depending on what you got. Optimus was in the 50-ish area but UIltra Magnus was fricking expensive. Most of the standard first gen autobots were also being sold around forty to fifty.

                Prime figures were around 16-20 maplebucks.
                Now new figures are usually 35+ unless they're really tiny figures. Then they're around 20-30. Those types of figures used to be around 10 maplebucks.

                it might just be the complexity of production/how much they sell. Optimus likely sell so much they can sell it for less, plus they likely have the original mold. Shockwave had to be remade from scratch since there's no existing reissue to make a mold off of. Same for the Dinobots but I imagine there's more nostalgia/market for them since the Chinese G2 release also had the dinobots.

              Beast Wars is good. The Bay movies are a mixed bag at best (2007 is decent, ROTF is awful, DOTM is awful but fun, AOE is awful, TLK might as well be vapor for how it came and went). Bumblebee is decent. Rise of the Beasts is nothing.

                Yes. I don't even like Bay much as a director (even Pain and Gain is merely decent to me, and I think that's clearly his best) but he does at least inflict a vision on the audience, though the 2007 movie's strongest moments are the most Spielbergian. Even the spectacle-free bits have more visual personality. RotB is flat and impersonal from start to finish. The final fight taking place in flat, featureless terrain was emblematic of the entire movie. Even the soundtrack isn't that novel by the standards of modern blockbusters.

                >appreciate both Bay
                I will never get Bay apologists. Those movies are just fundamental not good. I can see liking the robot designs and the few moments of robot interaction but they're overall bloated, boring movies that felt dated even back then(he was making Devlin and Emmerich style movies in 2007)
                It's not like I wasn't in the target market for it in 07, I was 14, the movie just isn't great.

                See the above. RotB is just dead air.

                I always get the feeling that the Transformers "fandom" has a love-hate relationship with the Bay movies.
                Without a doubt, those movies are what pushed Transformers into the mainstream, but at the same time, they seem so different from what the classic Transformers are that I can understand why some fans would be against them being the main way the general public sees the franchise.

                As someone who's considered himself part of the fandom since the 2000's(I was still a kid but I could go online), I was much happier with TF as a smaller but stable fandom.
                Transformers in the 2000's had reached a good balance of sustainability. They could be experimental but also do collector's figures and generally please a good range of people.
                Yes we got much more media and figures thanks to the movie- but now as we're in a period of decline in the media the drop feels far more severe than when it was just an anime ever two years.

          I don't like Prime Wheeljack, but I do think it's kinda interesting that they went back to the G1 toy, saw his face kinda feels like Snake Eyes, and made him a ninja/martial arts type fighter instead of a scientist.

          Wonder if Wheeljack was not as popular since the toy was kind of ugly, and weirdly shaped. It was like some kind of black knight ape thing with tiny legs.

          Knowing Diaclones were meant to be piloted mecha, I like to think of Lancia as a starship troopers type powered armor.

            Wheeljack has a very unique design (mostly his head, but also his shoulder/laser), is basically a mad scientist, and has a fantastic voice actor. I was disgusted with what they did to him in Cyberverse. He sucked in Prime but nowhere near the level of blasphemy as he was in Cyberverse.

              They should've just made him Drift. They clearly wanted to

              The order of operations was supposedly
              >Prime staff: We need a name and identity for a weapon engineer
              >Hasbro: Wheeljack is an engineer
              >Prime staff: Cool.
              Since every Drift focuses on the "Was once a Decepticon" thing at some point, that might have been an issue for this guy not being one.

              i really never saw the Drift/Wheeljack comparison. i'd argue he's more like a Sideswipe than a Drift.

        This is why people love Grimlock. He had a great dinosaur mode and robot mode that never looked weird.

          It didn't help that almost all the original cars were incredibly flimsy. Both car and robot mode. Everyone lost one of the doors or windshields. They were really wobbly and barely held together in either mode. Half the time the arms crammed under the hood made it impossible to roll the car on wheels. Weirdly season 3 toys made better overall toys that did not break in a day.

          Optimus was sturdy, simple, easy to transform, and made a great robot and truck.
          Grimlock had the same advantage. On top of being a dinosaur, he was at least a good dinosaur toy. Nothing was wobbly or accidentally fell out like a loose arm or something like a car door flopping around.

            Ironhide might be the worst of the original diaclone autobots. Just makes a really bad robot, that in no way resembles the cartoon character. His little death toboggan doesn't make up for it. He's a really flimsy minivan that doesn't hold together at all too.

              Ironhide makes sense in the toy's original context. As a bipedal weapon platform with a human pilot it's neat enough. It's still one of the weakest Diaclone toys, of course.

      Wen they were sorting the characters out for the first year of toys. Autobots are civilian vehicles, Decepticons are literally everything else. It got more vague as the line went on.

      Warpath is only an Autobot because all the Mini Vehicles are, alt-mode be damned.

      Both the animated series and Dreamwave had the OG Decepticons founded by Transformers built specifically as weapons, but by the time of the series start both factions have Decepticon and Autobot defectors like the Constructicons and Jetfire so it doesn't really mean anything beyond historical record, and it was probably lifted off the fact the original toys had all the Decepticons be military vehicles and the Autobots service and recreational vehicles.

    Compared to other 80s toys commercials G1 Transformers has some comfy stories, great personalities, charming ost, with memorable voice acting. The difference in quality compared to GoBots is staggering.

      GoBots suffered from rushing to be first. To be fair, Tonka was fighting the giant that was Hasbro so they didn’t have the money or marketing power to fight if they dropped at the same as Hasbro’s Transformers. Tonka was already in a bad spot before GoBots, and the GoBots money definitely kept them afloat, but their rush to make that initial cash hurt them in the long run since the quality of the Transformers toys and cartoon was overall better than what they were putting out and every adjustment they made once they were on the back foot just wasn’t enough. History Channel’s “The Toys that Built America” episode on Transformers and GoBots I think is a good recap of those initial years.

          Yeah Challenge of the GoBots was definitely not the right way to bring over the Machine Robo figures, with a Hanna-Barbera cartoon being a very 70s approach for the early 80s. If Revenge of Chronos had existed when they were importing Machine Robo, maybe we would still have GoBots but I highly doubt it.

          Actually China makes near perfect replicas of all G1 stuff, even puts them in replica boxes too. You can get a decent Shockwave for about $70ish

          True, but I just mean we won’t get an official release from Hasbro, China replica makers having a bunch of the molds goes to show how much of a mess over who has the mold rights is.

      I think the 85 Mini-Vehicles also don’t get to shine a lot, just because of how many G1 Autobots there are, so people like to use other more well known 84 or 86 Bots. Honestly the deaths in Elita’s Squad in Skybound made me kind of bummed, especially Warpath since he really doesn’t get starring roles that often these days.
